The table is ready/55th wedding anniversary

English version below the picture

La table est prête

La table attend les invités
Et pour eux s’est fait belle.
Sa nappe rouge attire.
Flacons et verres sont accueillants.

Elle entendra les retrouvailles,
l’évocation des temps anciens
ou les projets d’avenir,
les rires joyeux, les chansons.

Pour les jours de grande fête
Elle s’élargit , se multiplie
Et revêt ses plus beaux atours
Autour d’elles se presse la famille
Et se mêlent les générations
M. Fauquet . 16 Février 2016


Wednesday 16 around noon . The table is waiting some guests

The table is ready

The table is awaiting for the guests
And for them makes itself beautiful.
Its red tableclothe draws.
Bottles and glasses are welcoming.

It will hear the gatherings,
the evocation of the old time
or plans for the future ,
the joyous laughters and songs.

For large feast days
It enlarges its  sizes or  multiplies
And dons its finest clothes
Around them family reunited
  mingles the generations

    Dear Michel- your dinner table reflects the warmth of your family, comfort and memories! My grandparents always put a bowl of nuts out after dinner. I think it was a strategy to keep us there, lingering over coffee and conversation while the candles burned down! Love to you and Janine—-Happy New Year! ❣❣❣

    The gathering place , how lovely it is. If dining tables could talk it would be most interesting. It’s important
    to meet in this warm and delicious center of the home to share our lives. In good times and bad. Love to you and your family.

  8. The table and the kitchen have much in common. They gather the family for talks of joy and love! Sending love to you, Janine and the whole family! ❤
